The Gordon Research Seminar on Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The participants of this affiliated meeting will discuss novel results concerning the manipulation of spins in a broad group of materials and by a wide variety of stimuli (electric currents, temperature gradients, laser pulses). The main topics of the meeting will include antiferromagnetic spintronics, spin caloritronics, magnon spintronics, ultrafast spin dynamics and spin pumping. The phenomena under study will be discussed considering experimental results and theoretical approaches.
The meeting will start off with a general introduction into one of its main topics by one of the experts in the field. Furthermore, some of the challenges and opportunities of pursuing an academic career, in comparison with an employment in the private sector, will be addressed during a mentorship session, given by a senior scientist.
